Catacombs of Paris Detail of Skull - Photo by Fred Pixlab

The Catacombs of Paris are a fascinating photo location located in the heart of Paris, France. The catacombs of Paris were born of necessity in the 1700s to deal with Paris’ overflowing cemeteries. Corpses were exhumed and moved to the catacombs, where the bones were arranged neatly in artistic and surprisingly beautiful ways. Over 6 million bodies were transported to the catacombs and can be visited today by photographers with an eye for the macabre.
